I don’t recall ever reading in the Bible, “Eat, for this is my wedding cake,” but it seems to now be part of Wingnuttia’s Gospel According To Y’all Qaeda:
Supreme Court justices voted to hear an appeal from the owner of a Colorado bakery who refused to create and design a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
The high court has agreed to hear a major case pitting conservative Christian beliefs against gay rights, and decide whether some business owners may cite their religious views as a reason for refusing to serve same-sex couples.
And I can hardly wait for each different sect in our multi-cultural nation to take this to its logical extremes in what will be our We Don’t Serve Your Kind democracy:
- No bagels for you!
- Lord Vishnu will not let you have the Tandoori chicken!
- Go to another hospital, Baptists!
So, be careful what you wish for, Possum Hollar: you just might get it.
Also/Too: on this date in 2015, Obergefell v. Hodges was decided, and Marriage Equality became the law of the land.
